Race Chair(s)
John Viverito, Chris Dollin
Cruise Director
Mark Kanuk
Guest Speaker Committee
Ellen Henderson
Mark Kanuk Mark took pity when there were no nominations for this office, so he volunteered to be the Treasurer. We usually distrust someone who volunteers to hold your money, but Mark implied trust from the get-go. Just pay your dues and there will be no trouble.
Sherry Duffy It takes a brave person to be an organization note-taker. Be polite if she asks for some information to be repeated. The stress to be accurate is high.
Web Developer
Mike Hembrey Mike was appointed to the Unofficial and non-Executive position of Club Webmaster, mostly because he could spell HTML correctly. Mike was once a Web and Systems Administrator for a blind/low vision products company, but is now retired and passed his (Ham) Amateur Extra Class License exam January 2016. He also served a term as Commodore, and asks "Why can't I make Commodore decisions now?"
Linda Brandt Linda has spent 18 years in accounting and has been the Finance Officer for 7 years for the Coast Guard Auxiliary - Flotilla 74, which is an appointed position over 6 Flotillas. Linda has volunteered to continue on as our SHBC Club Photographer/Videographer, with her images often appearing in the Sentinel Newsletter.
